How can I replace the charging port?

the charging port on my surface book has a bent/broken pin, microsoft only offers to replace the entire unit for $900, obviously thats insane, is it possible to get my hands on a replacement and install it myself?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi!

To replace the charging port, you will need to replace the entire motherboard in the dock. The one that has the GPU on it. You can have a look at this guide, starting with step 23 to see for yourself. The fact that you have to replace the entire motherboard of inside the keyboard is the reason why they charge you that much i believe.
